St. Patrick’s day is upon us and with it a ton of St. Patrick’s Day crafts. I am shocked at how quickly February flew by. However, it will not be missed by this household. I am currently ready for the fresher air and bright colors that come with it! Today I want to share with you 5 really neat crafts to create this St. Patrick’s Day

1. Handprint Rainbow

This craft is too cute! It is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Plus, if you leave out the pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow it is also great for April Showers. Love crafts like that. Check it out here.

2. Shamrock Hands

Okay, well maybe it is just me, but I love handprint crafts. Watching my girls through the years as their little hands grow, well it touches the heart down deep! So I also love this little shamrock craft. Super simple and awesome for St. Patrick’s day.

Paint your child’s hand with green paint and press down on white paper 4 times. Then, cut out the handprint and glue onto a new paper to make a gorgeous personal shamrock!

3. Leprechaun Trap

This is a fun activity for older kids on St. Patrick’s Day. Grab an old shoebox and let them decorate it, because well, leprechauns love bright things! Set the box up like a little trap and wait. You can set it off and have a little extra fun as well!

4. Go on a Leprechaun Hunt

This is so much fun, and even though it is not a craft, my girls loved hunting for the clues last St. Partick’s Day. There are quite a lot on Pinterest, so all you have to do is print it out and set it up! I used this free one and it was fantastic!

5. Fruit Loop Rainbows


This is great for littles. All you need is a bowl of fruit loops and some pipe cleaners. I bought some extra long ones so the girls could really enjoy them. They made them into bracelets and ate them while I read some books.

There are so many fun activities to do for this holiday. Last year we made shamrock men and sang the shamrock songs. We also made some Irish bread. It was… interesting. Either way it is a fun time to have with kids. So remember to enjoy it!
